That the rules of Section 4, Chapter 1, Title 6 of the " MARITIMA, FLUVIAL AND LACUSTRE" (REGINAVE), regulation of the activity of the Naval Peritos, does not allow to enable all the professionals, technicians and specialists strictly connected with the maritime, fluvial, lacustre or harbour activities.

That what was said in the previous considering arises from the provisions of articles 601,0401 and 601.0403 of the REGINAVE, currently in force, which in determining the specialties of Perito Naval and having the conditions to access each one of them, prevents those who are not covered by the tax list of such articles to obtain their qualification.

That, in order to achieve a more flexible and dynamic normative system, it is necessary to proceed to the total replacement of the regulatory regime of the activity of naval experts.

That article 86, paragraph 2, of the Constitution, by providing the powers of the NATIONAL EXECUTIVE POWER, empowers it to issue such regulations as may be necessary to enforce the laws.




Article 1 -- Replace Section 4 of Chapter 1, Title 6 of the " MARITIMA, FLUVIAL or LACUSTRE NAVEGATION REVIEW" (REGINAVE), approved by Decree No. 4516 of 16 May 1973, which adds as annex 1 and forms part of this decree.
